General Inpatient Pediatrics

Division Director: Susan Gerik MD

The hospitalist faculty are available throughout the day to oversee care, to be directly accountable for ward activities, to interact with the nursing and ancillary staff, and to conduct quality improvement meetings. These doctors facilitate admissions, keep the primary care doctor apprised of the progress the child is making and are available to answer parents' questions. Hospitalists provide care for children with common medical problems who need to be hospitalized.
